  1. Wasn't there supposed to be some sort of survey of residents before a path forward was decided upon?

  2. I had the same thought, Nate. I cannot get away from work to attend a hearing so I'll need to find out how to make certain my voice can be heard before this is rushed through. Many questions remain unanswered about the impact this could have on homeowners.

    1. Once the hearing date has been set, the Office of Planning will send every property owner a letter with the hearing date and information about how they can offer input.
